This grilled flank steak recipe is a great make-ahead meal item. You can marinate it overnight and have it ready for dinner the next day. Serve with sauteed onions or potatoes to finish it off.

What You'll Need

  • 1 flank steak, about 2 pounds (900 g)
  • 1/2 cup (120 mL) applesauce, unsweetened
  • 1/3 cup (80 mL) soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) black pepper

How to Make It

1. Place the flank steak in a resealable plastic bag. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over steak. Seal bag and refrigerate overnight.

2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Remove steaks from bag, making sure to reserve marinade. Place the marinade in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and allow to simmer for 6 to 8 minutes.

3. Place flank steaks on a lightly oiled grill grate and cook for 6 to 8 minutes per side.

Remove from heat, drizzle with sauce, and serve.
